Hi - how should I split up my Xenium BIOS? 2x512, 4x256? I have a v1.4 xbox and a Xenium modchip. Just got the chip - haven't even turned on my xbox yet. Thanks!

I'm not sure about the Xenium, but if the bios works the same way as the Xecuter, I'd just flash 1x256 for now. Keep the other banks free just incase if something happens and you need them in the future (they're pre-programmed with FlashBIOS?).

Actually, the 1st 1mb is for XeniumOS, which can help you recover if anything goes wrong. Feel free to use the full 1mb, you have XOS to help you if your bios goes bad, and a write-protected 256k cromwell chip incase anything goes wrong with the XeniumOS.
